Join us for a reminder that things do indeed go bump in the night with a selection of classic films from Universal Studio’s golden age of Horror in the 1930’s. The Music Box Theatre and DePaul University’s School of Cinematic Arts are partnering to resurrect some of the most iconic monsters, murderers, and madmen ever captured on 35mm.This series will celebrate the haunting legacy of DRACULA, THE MUMMY, THE INVISIBLE MAN and MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE in establishing the horror genre as a site for powerful philosophical, political, and cultural discussions about the terrors lurking in the pitch black shadows of our imagination. Prepare yourself for a journey into the gothic darkness and macabre seduction of undead artistocrats, megalomaniac scientists, and the birth of Modern Horror Cinema.
Featuring introductions by DePaul faculty and post-screening discussions in the Music Box Lounge & Garden for audience members. This series is sponsored by DePaul University College of Computing and Digital Media, School of the Cinematic Arts.
